Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper in APA format comparing state and federal prison systems.
I need help. I can't find anything on state prisons history or the purpose. please help.
You will first need to decide WHICH state prison system you want to research. Not all states have identical processes and programs for their prison systems.
For example -- California: http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/
Another example -- Texas: http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/
Use the Search feature here to find information about federal penitentiaries, etc.
